QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How long that program will be carried out?
It is a 4-week program (divisible into 2 weeks) scheduled around daily working hours of Monday to Friday from 07h30 am until 04h30 pm. These working hours are flexible as activities may vary during the year depending on the seasons and on-going projects. Weekend activities will be scheduled during the 4-week stay including a bush sleep out, a visit to the local Big Five Game Reserve and other interesting local attractions.

Who will be your first contact?
When arriving on the farm the manager who will run through the planned program for your stay will welcome you. Some of the planned activities are season-bound and will change from one month to another. This keeps the projects fun and exciting.
Where will you stay?
You will stay in a newly renovated house with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a communal kitchen, TV lounge and terrace.
What will you do during your weekends and time off?
During the program you will have lots of fun during your free time. We offer sleep-outs on a wooden deck, nature walks, birding, fishing and game drives. There are ample opportunity for the volunteers to do photography and stargazing. For more adventures, we can organise horse riding and Big Five game drives.
